Solution for Conveyors

All areas of industry use conveyors of one kind or another to move materials and products.
Conveyor drive systems do not need particularly high dynamic performance; reliability and ease of inspection and maintenance, on the other hand, are essential.

Belt conveyors
are typically used to transport materials on the level or along slight slopes. They are driven by shaft mounted gearmotors in which the gearbox does not extend beyond the motor housing. Conveyor belt gearmotors are normally fitted with backstop devices to prevent the load from reversing direction when the motors are switched off.

Chain conveyors
are used in a variety of situations. They are normally driven through gearboxes that engage directly with the chain on which the product movement hooks are suspended. Gearmotors for this type of conveyor are typically bevel-helical units driven directly by the electric motor. Parallel shaft gearboxes are also used.

Roller conveyors
are generally used to transport long items like wood battens and panels. Material is moved along a series of driven rollers. Roller conveyors normally use parallel shaft or in-line gearboxes installed between a driven roller shaft and an electric motor. These gearmotor combinations must be compact in dimensions.

All types of gearbox used for conveyor drive can be controlled by Bonfiglioli inverters for maximum efficiency.
